I leave for Paris this Wednesday and I feel I am not ready to leave town again so quickly. I just returned home from Cincinnati late last night and my suitcase is yet to be unpacked. I knew this when booking the trip but the next few days are going to be jam packed getting ready for this next adventure.
A lot of people are asking what my agenda is this next trip, I am still working on that and it should be in a separate post this week.
The weather looks pretty good for October. It can be hit or miss and I have usually seen it turn towards the end of the month. The weather looks warm for at least half of the trip and since I didn’t see rain my last trip in April, I am actually looking forward to a rainy day.
I created a general packing list for Paris for the Fall here but below is what I am packing for Paris for my trip this year. I hope these packing lists help you when you are preparing for your own trip.
I always seem to forget a scarf when I am in Paris. No matter what the season is, it is always good to have one. I have bought multiple scarves to keep warm in April and May. I just bought this blanket scarf which I will bring with me along with a scarf my Aunt bought me a few years ago that I always bring for the plane. I can still this in my carry on and pull it out to use as a blanket.
It is officially leather jacket season which pretty much runs during early Fall and early Spring. I bought one a few years back and it was totally worth the investment since I wear it over and over again.
I recently purchased a trench coat that I love but with the sunny weather this April, I didn’t end up needing it. I can’t wait to break it out in Paris this October.
While half the trip will be warm and in the 70’s, the other half is up in the air. Sweaters are essential for Fall in Paris. I have been living in this open front sweater for the last month and I need to snatch it up in more colors. It is part of my Fall uniform.
I wrote a whole blog post about my favorite sweaters for Fall here. I have already fallen in love with some big comfy what I like to call “café sweaters” for the cold/rainy days.
I am leaving some room in my suitcase for a stop at Sèzane to pick up a few more sweaters.
Skirts and Dresses
I am so happy to pull this skirt out of my closet for Paris. I bought it last year and loved it. The original one is sold out but this one is similar.
I bought this top at Sézane that I will either pair with a skirt or pair of pants. I have already worn it once and I love it.
This dress has become a staple over the last month and I can’t wait to wear it a Parisian café with a red lip.
I always bring my Longchamp for a carry on when I fly to Paris. It can easily be folded up into my bag but makes a great addition when my luggage is just on the border of being overweight. Let’s be honest that has happened more than once. I carry snacks, my toothbrush, a clean pair of underwear and a blanket scarf. The luggage is so much heavier on the way home but it fits right on top of my suitcase so it isn’t too bad.
